• Owl Be Home for Christmas Freebie!

    December 6, 2013

    Right now my Momma has a major thing for owls. Like BIG time to the point that anytime I see anything owl anywhere I’ll think of her. Which is interesting because every time she sees one she thinks of my Poppa who passed away a year and a half ago. I know that since she…

  • Peppermint Cream Cheese Chocolate Cupcakes Recipe

    December 2, 2013

    I’m one of those weirdos who freaks out when they see candy canes on sale. Like, 6-7 boxes in my cart fa-reeeks! This year when I headed up to check out with my cart o’ canes the cashier actually said “you know we’ll keep selling these ’til a little bit after Christmas, right?” To which…

  • Rustic Christmas, Burlap Ornaments Tutorial

    November 28, 2013

    To be honest I never thought the day would come… The day I willingly crafted with BURLAP. Now it’s not that I’m a craft snob. You know the type who refuses to craft up something simply because it’s popular. That’s not me. At all. It’s just that burlap is way too rustic in appearance for…

    November 26, 2013

    Now I’d say for the most part I’m not often proud of myself. That’s not to say that I don’t think that I’m an awesome person who makes awesome things, because I’m rocking quite a bit of self confidence :) but I also know that not everything I do is full on AMAZING. And that’s…

  • Gum Drop Wreath Tutorial

    November 22, 2013

    When I was a kid one of the best things about Christmas was the candy. You see my Mimmie didn’t really let me have any candy and my parents did but they bought the candy they liked in bulk and, as it happened, it was candy I didn’t like. Anybody remember Tart ‘n Tinies? Blech.…

  • Transfer Images to Wood for Christmas Name Tags or Ornaments DIY

    December 21, 2012

    I love transferring images onto just about anything. Seriously, anything. It’s kind of like my new obsession with liquid gilding. So, Christmas present tags with faces instead of names seemed just the ticket. Good news is I’m the only one in the whole family crazy enough to DIY everything. So guess what, I don’t even…

  • Put a Bird on It! My Finished Tree for 2012

    December 20, 2012

    Not gonna lie… the first time I saw Portlandia I did not care for it. Probably had to do with the fact that I was hacked off in a super major way and in a really bad mood. I think my subconcious wanted to dislike the show simply because the person I was mad at…
